xfx 7970 flash to r9 280x

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
is it possible for me to do this on this card?
post #2 of 7
It's the same chip, why would you want to flash it to a 280X? Just to have it show as a 280X?

does it not help at all? and could I install the 7970 black edition bios on my card?

Every card is built with it's BIOS for a reason, you "Could" flash a 7970 to a 280X but it will most probably run hotter, you won't notice any great difference, every card has it's own custom PCB for a reason (talking about non reference cards) and you'd be asking for problems if you want to use this for the long run.

Overclock your card and call it a day

AMD released a tool that upgrades your 7970 to GHz edition. It's best if you just overclock it to the same specs as the 280x if you are going crossfire though.

where is the tool that I can upgrade my 7970 to the GHz Edition, I normally search the forum but due to all the mining the only stuff i can find is people complaining about how the xfx 7970 isn't a good miner.


EDIT: i think i found it. http://www.overclock.net/t/1281425/amd-release-hd-7970-ghz-bios-upgrade-for-reference-hd-7970
